    Dear Sossaman Band Family,  

    I am so excited to begin my 25th  year of teaching!  I love sharing my

    love of music with others!  I have been married to my best friend

    Dave for 18 years and we have two sons;  Ricky, 17 who is a student

     at Perry HS  and Jax, 14, a freshmen at Perry.  We

    also have 2 fur babies; Scrappy and Toby.  We love spending

    time as a family.  A couple of our favorite activities are camping,

    going to the movies and watching our boys play soccer and dive.

    We are going to have a fantastic year making music!!

    Please refer to the left column for various information you will need

    throughout the school year.  If you ever have any questions or

    concerns please don’t hesitate to email me.







    Did You Know?

    Life Skills

    Secondary students who participated in band or orchestra 
    reported the lowest lifetime and current use of all substances

    (alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs).  Instrumental music teaches

    children many skills necessary to succeed in life, including

     problem solving and decision making, building

    self-confidence and self-discipline, the ability to imagine

    what might be and to accept responsibility for it, teamwork,

    the development of informed perception, and articulating a

    vision. When faced with a problem to solve, students in

    music and the arts produce more possible solutions, and

    their solutions are more creative, according to a

    nationwide study.  As a parent of a MS student. this is

    so important to me!  I want my own children spending

    time with "good" kids!! 

    Student Performance

    The College Entrance Examination Board found that students
     involved in public school music programs scored 107 points

    higher on the SAT's than students with no participation.

    - Profiles of SAT and Achievement Test Takers, The College Board

    U.S. Department of Education data on more than 25,000

    secondary school students found that students who report

    consistent high levels of involvement in instrumental music

    over the middle and high school years show "significantly

    higher levels of mathematics proficiency by grade 12."

    Students who can perform complex rhythms can also make

    faster and more precise corrections in many academic and

    physical situations, according to the Center for Timing,

    Coordination, and Motor Skills.- Rhythm seen as key to 
    music’s evolutionary role in human intellectual development,
